Hearing the stories and learning from the experiences of young people is one of the most powerful tools we have to make change. However, we often hear stories that would expose those young people to undue risk of reprisal. So today we are sharing such a story anonymously. I interviewed a young person who works for an organisation and feels their trustee board is holding the potential of their charity back. Outside of their day job they also serve as a Young Trustee on other boards.
Inclusion is not simply existing in a space, it is thriving and belonging. Our day 3 theme for #TrusteesWeek2020 is therefore to highlight the voices that are at the sharp end of exclusion on boards. We teamed up with Oxford Hubs to bring this blog.
